Card Making

Same but Different

April 11, 2010

Good morning scrappers! Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.

Today I thought I’d show you make a heap of cards quickly, by making them the same (but different).  All you need to do is come up with the one design, and by using the same paper range you can make a whole set of cards that look different but go together perfectly, making them ideal to give as a gift.  Let’s get started…

Choose the paper range you want to use (I chose Gypsy Sisters)  Once you’ve decided how many cards you want to make, cut out an appropriate number of flourishes from the paper, (1 for each card).  Stamp a corresponding number of flowers with an ink to match the papers, and make some rolled flowers to match. (If you dont want your card to be too bulky, just stamp 2 flowers for each card instead.)

Now…cut (and ink) your papers to these sizes…

10cm x 14.5cm…..7cm x 9cm…..6cm x 6cm…..9cm x 2cm…..2cm x 2cm…..5cm x 2cm  (this is to make 1 card, so cut more of each size depending on how many cards you are making)   You should end up with a little pile that looks like this…

Now for the easy part – putting them together. Grab a pack of blank cards and envelopes, or you could fold your own cards, then just follow these quick and easy steps and you’ll have them put together in no time…

I hope you enjoyed this little step by step project.  Dont forget, we’d love to see your creations too, so make sure you pop them in the gallery!
